Synchronous condensers to enhance grid stability in Ireland, Finland and Scotland
23 November, 2023
Siemens Energy is delivering a hybrid grid stabilisation system – consisting of synchronous condenser (with flywheel) plus 160 MWh battery – to Shannonbridge B in Ireland. According to Siemens “this is the first time these two technologies have been combined into one, single grid connection”, with the aim of stabilising the grid and helping to make better use of renewables.

DTE’s CHP plant for Ford drives automation to the next level

Hydrogen firing in gas turbines and its impact on HRSGs
15 November, 2023
Hydrogen firing in gas turbines is currently attracting huge interest, but it is important not to neglect its potential implications for heat recovery steam generators and associated equipment such as bypass stacks.

Digitalisation and DSOs: increasing complexity is the mother of invention
09 November, 2023
The increasing decentralisation of the distribution grid and the transition to an all-electric future for homes, businesses and cars present new challenges for distribution system operators (DSOs) in managing and balancing the grid. Out of this necessity comes the need for invention, with digitalisation evolving to help solve the problem of asset visibility on the network.

Corrosion: Why we need to understand it better
08 November, 2023
Adapting existing fossil fuelled power plants for operation on lower carbon fuels – and thereby helping protect the vast amount of capital investment the existing fleet represents – requires a deeper understanding of the mechanisms driving corrosion. This has been a focus for research carried out by Cranfield University in the UK. It has also collaborated with the US Department of Energy in assessing high temperature corrosion issues that could arise in the operating conditions envisaged for future power generation technologies.

Repowering Japan's Futtsu power plant
03 November, 2023
GE Vernova has announced the successful start of commercial operation of the repowered Futtsu power plant Group 4, Chiba, Japan, with an installed capacity of 1.5 GW. A “flange-to- flange” replacement has been carried out, ie, replacement of an older engine from inlet flange to exhaust flange. At Futtsu Group 4, three GE 9HA.01 gas turbines have been installed in place of three GE 9H machines, which entered service over the period 2008- 2010. The 9H gas turbines at Futtsu were the first GE H class units to be deployed in Asia. The GE H class employed steam cooling of gas turbine components (rotating as well as stationary), but this approach was dropped in favour of the all-air-cooled HA.

Valmet to supply bubbling fluidised bed boiler to Göteborg Energi
02 November, 2023
Valmet is to supply a biomass fired power plant to Göteborg Energi AB in Gothenburg, Sweden. The new plant, to be in operation by 2025, will produce power and district heating from renewable and recovered sources.

Aker Carbon Capture awarded French EfW feasibility study
02 November, 2023
Aker Carbon Capture has been awarded a feasibility study to implement carbon capture at a waste-to-energy facility in France. The planned capture capacity will be approximately 200 000 tonnes CO2 per year and will be based on two Just Catch 100 carbon capture units. Year-to-date, Aker Carbon Capture has now contracted studies, Mobile Test Unit campaigns and pre-FEEDs for a combined capture capacity of 8.7 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.

UPDATE: Renewable energy for Europe from the Gulf and Morocco
19 October, 2023
The idea of importing renewable energy to Europe from warmer (and windy) places further south, is not new. Can recent initiatives, Gulf-to-Europe H2 pipeline and Xlinks (Morocco–UK HVDC link), succeed where previous ones have failed?

Bringing CCUS to Indonesian gas fuelled power
11 October, 2023
GE Vernova, CARBONCO of Korea, BP Berau (bp), PLN Nusantara Power (subsidiary of Indonesia’s national utility PLN), and PT Jawa Satu Power (aka Jawa 1), a special purpose joint venture of Pertamina, Marubeni and Sojitz that owns the Jawa 1 LNG fuelled combined cycle power plant, have signed an MoU to jointly carry out a feasibility study to develop a CCUS value chain and develop technologies to decarbonise gas fuelled power plants in Indonesia.

Headwinds, onshore and offshore
11 October, 2023
A prosperous and successful wind power sector is essential to achieving the energy transition, but, somewhat surprisingly, in view of the burgeoning demand for renewables, it is currently facing some serious challenges, both onshore and offshore.

Time for a nuclear renaissance in Europe?
11 October, 2023
Europe’s energy policy has been undergoing a paradigm shift since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The most obvious change is the necessary replacement of Russian pipeline natural gas imports with liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports, but a potentially more subtle, and arguably more important change, is a nuclear renaissance that is slowly developing and is supported by nuclear energy officially joining the list of “transitional” energies in the EU’s green taxonomy on 1 January 2023.

Can hydrogen be stored in porous rock?

The HyStorage research project aims to investigate the influence of hydrogen on porous rock formations in order to determine their feasibility for hydrogen storage.

Vogtle AP1000 project: the end is in sight, at last
05 October, 2023
Georgia Power’s ambition and that of its parent company, Southern Company, to build two AP1000 units at the Vogtle nuclear power plant site has survived massive cost and schedule overruns, to say nothing of the Chapter 11 bankruptcy of its main contractor and technology provider, Westinghouse. But Vogtle 3 is now in commercial operation and unit 4 is not far behind. The Vogtle AP1000 construction saga is finally reaching a successful conclusion and its “impact is much bigger than a single project”, suggests Brendan Bechtel.
